Planting Tips for Heirloom Radishes:

Radishes are a cool season crop and are quick to mature.  These heirloom seeds can be planted in spring or fall.  Due to the small size of these seeds and vegetables, most people will use a furrow technique when planting.  Sow in shallow furrow and cover with ¼” of sifted compost or light sand.  Later after the first few true leaves appear, it is best to then thin to final spacing.  Remember larger spacing will result in larger heirloom radishes but will take longer to mature.

Be sure to seed every few weeks if you desire a steady crop of heirloom radishes out of your garden.  Nothing can be easier to grow.  Consistent watering will tend to elimnate woody roots and a better tasting radish.

Seeding Care for Heirloom Radishes:

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
